Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

I think that gets to the root of many conservatives problem with this issue.

They try and tell you life is precious to them but it really isn't.

False hope though will lead you down dangerous paths though.

How many of them would think that it was gods will that we are in line to take a hit from said asteroid?

To me thats insane. It makes me wonder also.

If we knew for a fact an asteroid was headed toward the earth and its impact would incinerate the surface of the earth would they allow to hit if they could?

I mean after all it does figure into their end time predictions of fire and brimstone reigning down on the world.

Oh many of them would think that it was gods will that we in line to take a hit from said asteroid?

Its scary to think that some of them would think that way.

Now I say this with the thought that we would have a means of saving ourselves. We very well could not in the event it did happen. In which case their opinion really wouldn't matter.

I will say that I have often considered the religious types lackadaisical attitude to issues like climate change and irreparably damaging our planet's ability to support life as we know it as being immensely dangerous.

For them the solution to those problems will be solved when the almighty returns...sometime.

Its always not to far away for them interestingly enough. But yet they are never right about it when they predict it.

The end times are upon us they say.

But nothing ever happens.

I don't think Tiredofit grasps how small our world is and how wide ranging on it we are.

In addition to that he probably lacks the appreciation of the fact that its the only home we have.

Therefore we need to take care of it and by extension ourselves.

Ok...I'll give you the benefit of the doubt here. What is it about the well documented Severe acute respiratory syndrome that you don't believe about?

But yet Global Warming is true. You have admitted to that yourself.

You just think the dominant species on the planet is too small and puny to contribute to it.

Y2K, Global warming and SARS should be added to that list

Lol, I have heard many off the wall stories involving redheads but this was a new one.

I might recommend that if you are going to cite a story though, do more reading.

Redheads and even blondes have been "dying out" for centuries in crack pot news stories. Yet we are still here blessing the world with our very presence :)

Oh well what's to be expected when every single thing you say on here gets beaten back by facts.

You gotta have something to sling mud with I guess.

If someone made a similar statement like that directed toward you..why you be be crying about how mean they were to you.

Goodness you hypocrisy knows no bounds does it?

Finally some good news

On Monday, ginger-tinged schadenfreude reverberated through the Internet in headlines claiming climate change could cause redheads to die out.

“Gingers face extinction due to climate change, scientists warn,” blared the headline in Britain’s Independent newspaper, where the story originally appeared.

“According to experts, people with ginger hair could be extinct in a few hundred years,” the Huffington Post wrote, confirming redhead extinction alarmism had crossed the Atlantic.

For those that do not know, the Sun goes through a 11 year cycle process. This cycle will see the energy output of the Sun increase and decrease.

If those that believe that the Earth warming trend is all due to the Sun, then there should be a very easily seen causality between them but shockingly there isn't.

Why? Because the 11 cycle is one one factor in the overall climate. People need to get their head out of the hole that global warming=one and only one cause. Mankind is only one aspect of Global Warming but it is actually something that we can control at some level.

"Where did that come from one of your "self proclaimed" Climate scientists?"

Nope...NASA.

Do you know a better resource than NASA on this topic? Please..feel free to bring them up. I'm certain we all could use a laugh.
